I’m Scared to See What Happens in ‘The Rise of Skywalker’

The Rise of Skywalker. It’s all someone like me, a Star Wars fan, can think about these days. Why? Well, one, it’s the finale to the nine-film Skywalker saga. Two, it’s a new Star Wars movie.

She slit her father’s throat, killed her mother, and murdered their newborn son, and then to complete her mission, she needed to plunge this special dagger given to her by Set into the stomach of a man to bring the God of Death to life. But she was prevented from doing so, she was wrapped up like a mummy and buried alive in a casket, never to be found again.
